Naka Drotské has named the same match 23 that played against the Chiefs to face the Crusaders in Bloemfontein.
The Cheetahs drew their match against the Super Rugby champions 43-43, after they led the match 34-10 at half-time. Drotské will be hoping that his team can put aside the outcome of that match, and that they will be able to defend a lead, if any, against the men from Christchurch this Saturday.
The Cheetahs are currently 14th on the overall Super Rugby log, and fourth in the South African conference.
Cheetahs – 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Cornal Hendricks, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Rayno Benjamin, 11 Hennie Daniller, 10 Johan Goosen, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Jean Cook, 7 Pieter Labuschagné, 6 Johannes Prinsloo, 5 Francois Uys, 4 Lodewyk de Jager, 3 Nicolaas van Dyk, 2 Adriaan Strauss (c), 1 Trevor Nyakane.
Subs: 16 Ryno Barnes, 17 Caylib Oosthuizen, 18 Rossouw de Klerk, 19 Andries Ferreira, 20 Teboho Mohoje, 21 Shaun Venter, 22 Elgar Watts, 23 Howard Mnisi.
